Your ideal body weight

 

Your ideal body weight means you’re neither too thin (underweight) nor too big (overweight), rather you have a slender, healthy figure. Our free calculator utilizes the scientifically approved formula, focusing on your height, as well as age and gender, to appropriately place you within our ideal weight chart.

 

By incorporating this information, our calculator can determine the ideal weight for both women and men, as well as the how much you should weigh for a specific height. Our easy-to-read chart can then help you understand where your healthy weight should be. By accomplishing an ideal weight for your height, you can prevent all kinds of complications caused by being overweight or underweight. Plus, you’ll not only be much healthier, but you’ll feel great too. 

Factors influencing ideal weight

 

We’re all individuals, and that means what we should weigh depends on our individual lifestyle and genetics as well. In addition to age, gender and height, your ideal weight should incorporate several other aspects. Take activity for example. “No activity” compared to “very high activity” can change the “ideal” weight of an individual.

 

As a result, those who are very active in sports can yield a different value than someone who might describe themselves as a couch potato. Genetic make-up should also be taken into account. A petite female will most certainly have a different ideal weight than that of broad- shouldered, adult male. Furthermore, men tend to naturally have a higher muscle percentage than women, resulting in a higher ideal values. This can be taken into account in the “Assessment” field, where you can select a body type with high fat or high muscle percentage.

Significance of an ideal weight value

 

It’s important to keep in mind that the ideal weight chart displayed from our calculator is an approximate calculation, and should therefore be seen as a benchmark value. As previously mentioned, these values can vary significantly based on lifestyle and body make-up, as in fat versus muscle content.

 

This is especially apparent with athletes who tend to have a higher muscle percentage, and who are then, despite their healthy figures, sometimes placed in the overweight category. In actual fact, it is high fat content, not muscle percentage, which results in obesity and possible heath consequences. In other words, an ideal body weight cannot be equated with the proper weight for someone’s body type, but should guide an individual instead. While, in many cases, someone’s idea of ideal weight depends highly on society’s definition of beauty, it’s important that each individual feels comfortable and healthy in their own skin.

 

By incorporating this information, our calculator can determine the ideal weight for both women and men, as well as the how much you should weigh for a specific height. Our easy-to-read chart can then help you understand where your healthy weight should be. By accomplishing an ideal weight for your height, you can prevent all kinds of complications caused by being overweight or underweight. Plus, you’ll not only be much healthier, but you’ll feel great too.
